    Nah, if they won't add walls out of those blocks then we can replace them with starlit heaven wallpaper.
    Same as on mobile/console version you can replace cog wall with tin plating wall. (I think the replacement even looks better)

    Asphalt block is my favorite block for running to point A to point B with or without Hermes boots

    Would there be block backgrounds two?
    Would there be Starry block walls two?
    Also I like both.

    Considering that literally every block in the game that is used for building has walls, I severely doubt they wouldn't have walls.

    Marble in combination with pearlwood. But no worries, those starry blocks will fit in quite well indeed, you tease.

    I have to take my vote for granite. :p Nothing beats infinite and renewable building resources with nice textures.
    Woods get a similar vote with probably rich mahogany, boreal as the two best to use decoratively though palm, ebonwood and shadewood aren't bad either I have to admit I don't usually do all wood construction opting to use it as an accent piece instead. Also Glowing Mushroom is always awesome and pairs really well with granite

    Otherwise when it comes to bricks I'm a big fan of ebonstone brick followed by Iridescent Brick The prior is also the best way to use ebonstone while the second lets me clear out leftover ash as an added bonus. crimtane brick is pretty cool too though it annoys me that it uses regular stone unlike its counterpart demonite luckily I never need to make either of those two just drop voodoo dolls into lava. ;)

    Crystal is interesting though I admit I haven't really played around with it since I've done most of my major building before I get the capability to make it and it kinda clashes with chlorophyte too much for a chlorophyte farm. Its a similar situation with Conduit Plating though I did replace my world spawn base with it it was quite a bit more work than I had anticipated. I can't wait for that block swap as it should finally let me prettify stuff.

    I also have to add that stone+ Moss looks pretty god though you have to worry about it getting converted, but for fire moss it is worth it! I only wish Fire moss wouldn't get destroyed by the spreading biomes perhaps it could turn into cursed inferno, ichor and crystal moss variants? It is too precious to loose to the three evils. :eek:

    I also like the look of ___ Dungeon but there isn't enough furniture to ever actually use the stuff similar to the other loot only furniture set obsidian. That said bone torches and bone lanterns with the right paint allow you to make a fairy spooky decorated dungeon.

    And or course the new block is interesting though personally it has more motion than I would like for a main block it looks like a good block to use as an accent piece.

    I usually make my apartment-skybases out of marble with touches of granite and glass, so marble would be the one I'm most likely to build stuff out of.

    But, if I had access to a creative mode or similar where actually acquiring resources didn't matter so much, I'm a fan of crystal blocks, the coloured team blocks, Titanstone + Rich Mahogany, and... I'm probably going to have to agree with the starry blocks honestly.

    Whew. Those starry blocks are definitely going to be a new favourite of mine. Especially if they have the trippy effect when moving that Twilight Dye has.
    Actually oh, there's an idea for the update: Converting special dyes into paints! That would be cool.
    And as for another favourite... Hm... Well, perhaps not a fav, but it doesn't get enough of a spotlight: Glass, and variants thereof. Necessities for most builds.

    And then, I know it's not the topic, but least favourite blocks?
    Shadewood.

    Look at that terrible connection in the first image. Look at how poorly it works when linked to other blocks in the second. Look at the repetetive squareish pattern of its walls in the third. Eugh. And its furniture isn't much to look at either.
    Can we please get at the very least a fix for that broken connection texture in the first image in 1.3.6? This has been driving me insane since I first tried using it in a build.

    Could be worse if it acted like Sandstone does (though with that furniture I have hopes that will be fixed with a real sandstone brick unlike the one currently in the game e rich color would be amazing if it worked better for construction so I have high hopes hopefully not to high though...
    That said Shadewood it is definitely the worst wood...ascetic wise.

    I actually don't see a problem with Rich Mahogany and Shadewood, because I like how they are more unique and I find them better looking than normal wood.
    It's not so broken to be needed to be fixed. It just one pixel that stand out could be worse like with Bone Blocks. These need to be trully fixed and their tiles updates to look visually better.

    I could say there are more worse building materials just because don't doen't line with other blocks are more propably Mushrooms and other blocks like Slime Blocks because their inner sprite is smooth.

    That is why you have to find nice combination,
    Shadewood isn't worst block, in my opinion Asphalt Block (very dark, no shading near outlines, next update is going to have shading updates and looks a lot better) and Bone Block (like I said this one needs to be fixed.

    For you I actually tested if I can do something with shadewood and here's this. Second have second darkest colour where it stand out most and third is somethign more I would like to see and like about Shadewood (literally too about 1 minute)
